I am associate professor (Maître de Conférences) at the University of Rennes. I belongs to the Capsule research team within the IRISA computer science institute.

My main research interest is cryptanalysis of symmetric primitives, including block ciphers, stream ciphers and hash functions. In particular, I like to design and develop automatic tools, dedicated or based on external solvers, to search for optimal parameters regarding special classes of attacks.

Most of my publications are referenced on dblp and can be found on eprint or HAL.
